About Me

Biography

I’m a resident in the Child Neurology / Pediatrics Combined Residency Program at Cincinnati Children’s. I was first drawn to this field by my fascination with the inner workings of the body’s nervous system.

I am inspired by the resiliency of children with neurologic conditions and enjoy forming longitudinal relationships with patients and families over the course of their care. I love the creativity of finding ways to engage each unique infant and child in the neurologic exam.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking and backpacking, baking desserts, and hanging out with my cat. I have trekked to Machu Picchu and completed the Tour du Mont Blanc.
